Porch, Solomon's


Porch, Solomon's
   A colonnade on the east of the temple, so called from a tradition that it was a relic of Solomon's temple left standing after the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians. (Comp. 1 Kings 7:6.) The word "porch" is in the New Testament the rendering of three different Greek words:
   1) Stoa, meaning a portico or veranda (John 5:2; 10:23; Acts 3:11; 5:12).
   2) Pulon, a gateway (Matt. 26:71).
   3) Proaulion, the entrance to the inner court (Mark 14:68).
